just as the father of a church on monday killed by the f.b.i. during questioning talks to see about the suspicious circumstances behind his son's death and he's told the agent said countable. u.s. secretary of state heads to brazil to face demands for an explanation as to why washington is spying on the all of latin america mostly tongue is seen commercial secrets. russia's interior ministry says the sochi winter olympics will be safe and comfortable for the gay community and everyone else following theory over a new law banning homosexual propaganda to mind. this
is coming to live from moscow hello and welcome to the program the father. died while being questioned by the f.b.i. in his home has traveled to the you asked to demand someone be held accountable ibrahim to family insist he was unarmed while being interrogated about his links with the man accused of carrying out the boston marathon bombings there are allegations that he was shot in the bank of his head he's a sitter can imagine the grieving father who wants justice for his son. a quaint residential neighborhood in florida and a father who can't hold back his tears. nothing will bring me peace as long as i live from the moment it happened i haven't been able to forget about it even for a second barely containing his grief. takes a moment several times during our interview. a few days ago he arrived in the u.s.
from russia to seek answers for his son in brigham's tragic death this is the entrance into the condo where twenty seven year old lived minutes away from disney world it was here that on may twenty second after reportedly being questioned by officials for hours he was shot and killed by the f.b.i. under circumstances most of which remain murky. from reminiscing about ibrahim as a child who was very much into sports. to looking through graphic images that a parent should never get to see images that will haunt him for the rest of his life which four or five shots right into the heart i've never seen things like this even in the movies not in the u.s. not in russia nowhere. such violence from law enforcement nowhere have i seen anything like this in the morning father's on a mission to uncover the truth behind the f.b.i.'s killing of his son and he's even willing to say. this but i want justice honestly because an unprecedented
intentional murder of my son took place. ibrahim came to the u.s. in two thousand and eight to study english and ended up staying to pursue a career in martial arts this spring he was questioned in connection with a triple homicide in massachusetts as well as the boston marathon bombings as officials believe the chechen young man had been friends with the deceased suspect a milan sir. the father says the only connection his son had to the tsar knives was a chechen background that had once promised. them to exchange phone numbers were given received multiple fatal gunshots to the heart and head during the night of the questioning the f.b.i. claimed a violent confrontation took place but has been blocking autopsy results from going public some reports suggested breggin was armed with a knife others a broomstick but there are also claims that he was not armed at all demands from the american civil liberties union and the council on american islamic relations
for florida authorities to hold an investigation were declined while the f.b.i. claims to be conducting an inquiry of its own as with now they would never be able to prove his guilt in anything because they killed him if they kept him alive tried him that would be a whole different story. showing us the postcards from american sending condolences to his family by key hopes those behind his son's killing would show some heart as well. maybe the f.b.i. will have some kind of guilt resurface and it meant that they committed this fatal mistake for several years prior to his death ibrahim was not able to leave us while waiting to be granted a green card he eventually received permanent residence status and had plans to visit home on may twenty fourth but he died two days earlier. i'll never get tired i'll do what i can i'm just not able to leave this.

n.s.a. surveillance program washington was a brinkley's being on the unsolved brazilian's telephone records as well as private e-mails for about a day kate brazil's foreign minister talking about through all that has said that this can't be left out of the conversation between two top countries the us right after the brazilian paper published an article in july you and the n.s.a. collecting data on been solved telephone email conversations in the country the foreign minister suppressed deep concern and asks for a small nations in father bill brazil once the matter addressed at the united nations to find a legal way to protect the rights of citizens and preserve the serving of the countries meanwhile it looks like the most provocative relations are you still to come deem agree world the america who publishes snowden leaks documents claimed
that what has seen so far it just these mollies slice of a much bigger cake he promised to release thousands of files in the upcoming weeks or so related to what he say is the secret united states surveillance of the global internet. that has reportedly told brazilians ofi shows that disclosures we'll unveil more each year gates. details of the america's spy world a white in brazil in particular so it looks like washington has some issues to our you're out why the n.s.a. scandal seems to be taking on a broader debate sions running her fellow to r t brazil. and your political analyst every trade to explain to us why brazil is among the top targets of the n.s.a. surveillance. the surveillance was targeting economic interests business
interests this adds an entirely new dimension to this story because as we all know brazil is one of the world's leading emerging economies of course it's the united states and the ruling class in the united states that is tremendously fearful of the rising economic power of the brics grouping it is not just a formality that we use this term it represents a shift in the global economic balance of power and the united states knowing that its economic power is waning is using alternative means to exercise his gemini and project its own power and the surveillance that the n.s.a. operates within other agencies as well that is a fundamental part of that whether it gives the united states an upper hand in negotiations whether it allows them to use blackmail and other forms of leverage all of this is part of the the good tool kit if you will of u.s. imperialism in latin american around the world. while countries such as brazil look
for a way around american surveillance of file sharing website carried by a marks ten years of out not to take out smoking governments by launching a sunset to launch an online browser read more about the new software advice r.t. dot com. the u.k. is considering unprecedented legal action against spain of a checks put in place on its border with two prole to which is a british have a tree london has called and i'm politically motivated while madrid is considering taking the issue to the u.n. and in a faddish of fools and britain is sending royal navy ships to take part in trails in the region and they will dock in travolta and a sea maze joining us now live from london ted said great to see he is so well kind of tell us about the causal base a spot worried might lead to. well first of all it all started with spain saying that it really wants to protect its interests mainly fishing interests
as this whole spat this whole story was sparked by gibraltar's building of an artificial reef which spain claims is destroying fishing in the area and therefore it had imposed a border checks on those going to one from a gibraltar a british held territory of beer for causing a lot of delays and right now the rhetoric is escalating between britain and spain over the matter britain is threatening e.u. legal action over spain say what it says it's a politically motivated move and london mayor boris johnson actually said that it is quote unquote tantamount to a blockade even used particularly harsh words saying quote i hope one way or another we will shortly prize spanish hands off the throat of our colony end quote and also like and be actions of the spanish government to the franco the time of military dictatorship favorite sport as reported by the spanish press is considering escalating this to the level of the united nations even floating around
the idea of spain and argentina presenting a united front over gibraltar and the falkland islands are clearly as britain boris johnson in particular is criticizing spain by raising the a franco era you have spain you're highlighting what critics without a doubt will be see as britain's colonial behavior or habits and now all of this is happening as thousands of royal navy personnel have already set sail for the mediterranean and what the ministry of defense has insisted it is a long scheduled a training exercise well long scheduled or not it seems the timing is not lost on the london mayor boris johnson as he said it quote the deployment should send a clear signal to the spanish it seems that the spot is continuing to go on. line from london thank you very much indeed for that thank you. still ahead for you this hour here on our c iraq's wave of death the latest string of attacks leave
over five hundred people dead just after the bloody is july fourth. also coming up a look at how china is set to overtake the last as the world's top while important it is in concern over the global effects of it slowing economic growth that and much more shortly. most of these boys has been told a lot for violence or theft. but we drove the window climbed in and tried started the dump we pushed it a little way here we were drunk. and soon who you're an alcoholic or nearly all of them are homeless orphans with no money or relatives. or you may go to without me. for a moment but there it felt like i was back with those street hooligans are going to
beat me up at any moment. as i turned my back i couldn't help wondering about my safety. isn't a warden he's there the father you could say that slobber raises us he makes normal people out of ugly duckling. and this is r t welcome back russia's interior ministry has called claims of discrimination and bias towards homosexuals in the country far fetched and
guarantee the safety and comfort of anyone competing in the upcoming sunshine winter olympics this was in response to global projects by the gay community who are calling for russia to be stripped of the games for introducing all they believe is an anti-gay law lisa catherine looks now at what's causing the strong reaction. the international reaction as well as domestic here reaction here in russia has really been hinged on what the law does and doesn't do and there's been a lot of misconceptions about it so let's really break it down now the bill criminalizes the public expression of support for so-called nontraditional relationships russian lawmakers say that it doesn't outlaw homosexuality it merely discourages the discussion of it among people younger than eighty and now the law doesn't outlaw gay sex which was actually legalized in russia back in one thousand nine hundred three it also doesn't explicitly ban the participation in gay pride parades the problem however is that the defendant and of propaganda is rather vague
and it's based on intent so anyone who distributes information for example with the intention of persuading minors that nontraditional sexual relationships are attractive could be accused of breaking this law any individuals or organizations who are accused convicted of violating it face fines for an citizens could potentially face up to fifteen days in prison deportation and denial of the entry into russia now will most activists believe that this law will lot to be widely enforced there is concern that it effectively gives some local governments carte blanche to say to ban gay pride parades and to discourage people from discussing lesbian gay bisexual issues on the internet so that's the worry the thing to keep in mind however is that russian society is very traditional and conservative and there is in fact a lot of support for this legislation here domestically the independent center a polling center here in russia had actually found that seventy three percent of respondents support any government efforts to curb homosexual propaganda in fact at
least the texas haven't really changed over the years it also found that four out of five russians say that they don't have a single lesbian or gay acquaintance so that is why there's been such a difference in for example the western and. national reaction versus the reaction right here in russia that's a perfect opportunity to sort of make political statements for whatever issue that comes up this is the the main sort of social hot button issue that's been raised internationally originally the law had sparked a boycott of russian vodka and gave them bars across north america and elsewhere with people dumping a box and front of russian embassy as eventually the calls moved on to boycott the twenty fourteen winter olympics in sochi and one of the prominent british actor stephen fry of course raised intense controversy when he wrote an open letter to the prime minister david cameron as well as the international olympic committee
suggesting calling for a boycott suggesting fact that there should be a boycott of the cames even comparing them to the games held in berlin in one thousand and thirty six of course that was in nazi germany but we should also states that most officials including u.s. president barack obama had said that the boycott is unnecessary and that these games should continue to be attended by the athletes now here in russia the russians force minister said that foreign athletes will be expected to respect the laws of the country but the head of russia's the olympic committee alexander also spoke out on this issue he said that russia will do its best to effectively keep the guests on the participants safe and comfortable that very mixed reaction internationally but russian officials are trying to encourage athletes to to feel comfortable and to of course participate in these upcoming sochi winter olympic games. my colleague and his guys discussed what's changed
a little was introduced. we are an international community bonded by the homophobia that affects all of us and what we have to do is take a stand against the fact that the government is actually preventing education rather than propaganda that is desperately needed feel people who are growing up lesbian and gay growing up with prejudice this cause this day it causes distress anti gay bullying is terrific but it also is deep in issues because of the huge fines it imposes an organization and individuals who even mention gay rights but i am going right against you know i like you i constantly as a journalist here in suicide put you know i constantly as a journalist here go on about gay rights in russia and i on this channel i've spoken various networks around the world about this i've not been penalized or find out or i'm just trying to give the people at home the reality of the situation here i posted on facebook on saturday probably a bit unfair for obviously the protests and as as. journalists here i know the
reality of life and i just wanted to put to stop the styria you know it doesn't snow all year around there's a simmering active thriving gay community in russia and indeed in sochi when i was filming the last week there was one that i just wanted to actually get my car on humble mature opinion regarding gay life in russia and i was nothing short of i was assassinated for a for having possibly you know you know pro you know thoughts on russia which is seen as as evil russia want to talk about it's a political commentator. there london as well as the recent levada poll recently saying that more than half of russian support the law and conservative traditions are alexander your thoughts on the well i think first of all i've been asking some people here what is it exactly that british athletes are playing to do in sort of other going to. get a lifestyles or are they going to compete they're actually in the games themselves
but that may tell you something about the league. the lord be here and the game will be as well we've. none none existing debate about gay marriage same sex marriage the debate was suppressed by the liberal elite nobody was allowed to say anything the moment you questioned you know whether it's a wise thing to do you were immediately accused of being a call before i think it's time for the gay community to realize you cannot prevent the people from having their own views and in london you know of what was there on computers and i think it's total implodes total intolerance by the by the liberal elites they're not allowed this political correctness has turned into censorship from l.g. bt sports is it right to boycott the olympics no it's not trying to completely calls for sochi olympics because lympics plates don't deserve
treatment in the modern history of the movement we had to boycotts it must be nine hundred eighty and in the early one nine hundred ninety four. couldn't compete in a highly competitive atmosphere for twelve years i always bring up to two comments regarding this entire situation first of all i think the law is wrong the law is bad and it should be cherry and so i think the timing for the russian government with such coming up is terrible but it's one thing the second thing is why does nobody ever mention qatar the world cup coming up is that because two reasons i think that is i spoke to one of our friends in the government the in the u.k. he said that's because it's so suppressed over there it doesn't matter which i think is just ridiculous and the second comment was that because it's football homo sexual interest doesn't go along with our sport which i think is absolutely ridiculous all of the countries and i think this gets forgotten have signed in a limping charter which states that there is no kind of demonstration or political religious or racial propaganda allowed to any olympic sites venues or other areas
is the l z b t community going to allow this a. become about gay rights and not about the olympics and also what about other minorities that feel like they need to have their say at the olympics how many protests are we going to see or we're going to have a gay pride protests and then a protest about western countries that want russia to intervene in syria and then another protests from the environmentalists they don't think the olympics should be held there at all everyone's going to want to have their say. and more news online for you nobel prize for a whistleblower supporters of us on the private bradley manning who is facing up to ninety years in prison for leaking secret data with one hundred thousand signatures on a petition to get there he wrote recognition. traveling in the cheap faster than a then a billionaire inventor of the musk believes he's hired but project could revolutionize intercity travel around the world line to find out.
a suicide bomb in central iraq has killed at least sixteen people just a day after kind of claimed responsibility for a string of attacks that left over ninety others dead violence in the country has claimed the lives of more than three hundred people in the first two weeks of august that number already approaching the total for the whole of august last year this follows july which was the deadliest month since two thousand and eight and margot tango who has investigated the consequences of the u.s. led military campaign in iraq things if the us led operation that has sown the seeds of terrorism that. of ironic that the u.s. now is to chase al qaeda in iraq while before the war al-qaeda was almost totally absent from the country so i do think it says something about the chaos the military intervention has brought about it says something about the fact that when you destroy a country obviously all kinds of terrorist groups armed groups will be free to act
in any way they like let's be honest i mean there's no way just a bounty will solve the problem of terrorism in iraq terrorism is not small just by repression by giving basic services like giving healthcare to the iraqis by giving a decent education system those things should be guaranteed the destruction brought about by war has. totally destroyed any form of health care i mean a decent level at least. and some other world news in brief this our reports from egypt suggest believe advance people living close to major city in protests in cairo to leave their homes thousands of protesters who support ousted president mohamed morsi is still waiting for the police to carry out a threat to remove them but authorities have postponed storming two major city is apparently to avoid bloodshed protesters have already spent more than a month and the council demanding morsi be reinstated to office. and seizure forces in jerusalem have given the green light to the construction of
over nine hundred seven houses on occupied territory in the east of the country is likely to increase the divide between these rate and palestinian sides who are shadow to begin peace talks on wednesday another twelve hundred settlement holders have already been given the go ahead in the west bank despite calls from the international community that there should be no new obstacles to the negotiations. china is likely to overtake the you as says the world's largest crude oil importer this year according to a report by the energy information i say station with millions of drivers thirsty for petrol and growing industrial production beijing's liquid fuel in portals are forecast to rise to over six million barrels per day and i let my colleague andrew farmer discuss the market reaction with his business correspondent kate if he'll be him. well investors really it's a sigh of relief that we see you we had a metals rally on our hands at one point and it's not just oil that's making its
way to china in record amounts but soybeans iron as well but the oil really demonstrates a change in dynamics is a global shift the u.s. has been the top or consumers it's the early ninety's so why are we seeing this shift with the fact that china is growing they need the oil for that they need it for their cars for their factories for the infrastructure but really aligned with this is what's going on in the u.s. domestically the shale gas boom they're far more self-sufficient than ever before so this could have a big impact you think on the global yeah i think the people that are set to benefit a rock especially that's where the most oil goes to more than half actually comes from iraq and the middle east in general but russia is also going to want to listen into this we know that russia wants to tap in being neighbors into this market just like china more attractive this data really but as well as that it's not just about economics it's about politics as well with the oil market because it is such a to mulches region the oil producing countries and the maybe pressure on china now
to be more vocal in what's going on there the u.s. perhaps more less inclined less motivated to be so going forward talking about responsibility also the emissions carbon emissions we know china isn't exactly admired for their eco ethe also be interesting to see if they follow in the footsteps of the likes of europe japan who are more conscious in this department will follow in their predecessor the u.s. and gas girls a lot. coming out what happens when a single man takes over the challenge of looking after an entire find out for a short break here on out. the u.s. government project arrow marty has been in place for twenty years this project was
designed to break the media monopoly on cuban television by putting u.s. government propaganda on t.v. screens this injection of american t.v. works with a blimp and a c one thirty military plane working in tandem you know this would actually be a major achievement in the history of technology if it actually worked this program which over the years has built up a billion taxpayer dollars simply does not work but continues to exist despite the cuban government completely blocking the transmission the official logic of continuing the program is that it would send a bad message to the cuban government if they stopped brilliance and action but the big question is who gives the u.s. government the right to propagandize cuba is just because they have a different lifestyle doesn't mean it is wrong and the u.s. government does has the right to destroy it and even if cubans on mass actually do hate their system then it is their job to change cuba not the military industrial complex and its cronies in washington but that's just my opinion.
was posted to some degree where he would you tell to bring everyone together here everyone's here. you can you see everyone fifteen people really pleasantry i was wondering what fishing with you under my eyes deceive me then yes i would but of course when it comes to fishing he can do that for now as well as that ask him to call everyone together and nobody's here. you know why you're late what's the problem you want us when you always mess everything up with you is that you. what am i doing film i cloud what would. most of these fifteen boys have been in trouble with the law for violence wars but . all of them are homeless or friends with no money or relatives.
